Plans/Targets for Norfolk/East of England
To work within the guidelines in the WSP. There is some work linked with the 'legacy' of the 2012 Olympics at the Lea Valley White Water Centre.
There is limited funds held by the regional development team, which is used for small projects, under writing events and minimal purchase of regional equipment. This is mainly funded through the profits made at coach updates held in the region.
